The Ridgely family coat-of-arms was used on items of personal adornment as well as furnishings for the house. One button of these handsome links is engraved with the initials of John Ridgely (1851-1938), the other with the coat-of-arms. These gold cuff links may have been a present at the time of John and Helen West Stewart Ridgely’s (1854-1929) fiftieth anniversary in 1923.
